Whistle-Stop Tour: Exploring Glasgow on a BMW 1250
When planning our adventure across England, Wales, and Scotland, visiting Glasgow was a top priority on our list. And let me tell you, it did not disappoint!
Our stay at the Premier Inn on George Street was a wise choice. With secure parking conveniently located just across the street for our BMW, we felt at ease and ready to experience Glasgow to the fullest.
Escape the Rain:
On the journey in, we encountered slower speeds due to rain. Thankfully, we had the luxury of staying in a hotel instead of braving the elements under canvas. It gave us a chance to relish the Great British culture of heading to the pub, and so we made our way to The Horseshoe Bar on Dury Street. Here, we satisfied our appetite with some delicious food and accompanied it with a couple of pints of beer.
The next day, we dedicated our time to exploring the various shops in Glasgow. From the Lego Store to Victoria’s Secret, Lush, Buchanan Galleries, and St. Enoch Centre, there was no shortage of retail therapy. We eventually found ourselves at “The Social” in Royal Exchange Square, where we indulged in some mouthwatering food and refreshing drinks.
Cultural Wonders Await:
Although our visit coincided with the challenging times of COVID, we still managed to appreciate the cultural gems Glasgow had to offer. The Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, Glasgow Cathedral, the Necropolis, and the Glasgow Science Centre Tower were just a few of the highlights we missed due to time constraints. But fear not, when we find ourselves in the vicinity again, we will make it a point to explore these wonders in all their glory.
What truly stood out in Glasgow was the warmth and cheerfulness exuded by the locals. Their friendly nature made our experience all the more memorable. Needless to say, we cannot wait to return to Glasgow at the earliest opportunity.
With this remarkable city and its vibrant atmosphere, Glasgow is truly a must-visit destination.
